Jewelry Trunk Show To Take Place At Liberty Square

Liberty Square, Egg Harbor’s New England Style dining, shopping, entertainment and art center, located at 7755 Hwy 42, will host a two day four-star Artisan Jewelry Trunk Show on Saturday August 23 and Sunday August 24. This two-day show will run from 10:30 am – 4:30 pm on Saturday and 10:30 am – noon on Sunday. A free wine tasting and selected appetizers will be served from 2:30 pm until the end of the show on Saturday. There will also be live piano music at selected times on both days. The shows will be held in Liberty Square’s Board Room and Art and Home Décor Center.

The work of four artisan jewelers that will be on display are Carol Motty, Sarah Mann, Polly Daeger and Michael Ann Carley.

Carol Motty, a well-known New York artist who died in 1997, has had her jewelry featured on the covers of Vogue, Glamour, Women’s Wear Daily, New York Magazine, to name a few. Her jewelry is part of such diversified collections as those belonging to Katherine Deneuve, Lauren Hutton, and Elton John, and her work has been shown at art galleries and museums around the world.

Amanda DeWitt, Liberty Square’s retail manager, who is herself an artisan jeweler and silversmith, said the two-day trunk show at Liberty Square is worth visiting if only to see the work of this internationally acclaimed artist.

“Motty’s work has been an inspiration to many aspiring artisan jewelers, throughout the world,” said DeWitt.

Michael Ann Carley is a regular exhibitor at Liberty Square. She obtained a Master’s of Fine Arts Degree at The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where she was an art curator. The other two artists whose work will be featured at the trunk show on August 23 and 24 are Sarah Mann and Polly Daeger both of Milwaukee.

The show is open to the public and is intended to provide a wide selection of artisan jewelry for display and for sale and will give visitors a chance to learn about the jewelry from the artists and their representatives.
